    There is a $5.00 charge per card.

  1. Where can I use my card?
    Your card may be accepted anywhere Visa® debit cards are accepted. Your card can also be used for online and telephone purchases if the card is registered exactly like the address on file with the merchant.

  1. When using my Gift Card at a merchant as a point-of-sale transaction, do I choose Debit or Credit?
    At point of sale, use the "Credit" option, which will require your signature. "Debit" transactions, which require a PIN, are not available at POS terminals.

  1. What happens if my card is declined at the point-of-sale?
    A couple different scenarios may have caused your transaction to be declined.

    • The merchant selected "debit" instead of "credit" to run the transaction

    • The merchant selected "gift" instead of "credit" to run the transaction

    • The merchant attempted to run the purchase through for more than available on the card. If this happens, you should ask the merchant to run a "split-tender" transaction, which will allow you to pay a portion of your purchase with your card and the remaining balance with another form of payment.

  1. How do I register my personal information to my gift card and what's the benefit of doing so?
    You would register online at by creating a profile, adding your gift card to your profile and then editing the registered name. Registering your card will provide the additional security required to allow you to use your card for phone and internet purchases as well as requesting a replacement should your card become lost/stolen.

  1. What if my purchase is greater than the value available on my gift card?
    You will need to advise the merchant how much is available on your card. (You can keep track of your balance by writing down transactions on the card sleeve, or by visiting .) The merchant may complete a split-tender transaction and charge the gift card for the available balance. The remaining amount of your purchase would require another form of payment.

  1. Can I use my card at restaurants?
    Yes, you may use your gift card at a restaurant the same as you do at any other merchant. However, it is common for service-oriented merchants to automatically factor in an additional percentage (often times, up to 20% over the purchase price) to cover a tip you may leave on the card. You should ensure that your gift card has an available balance that is 20% greater than your total bill .

  1. How do I use my card at hotels and rental agencies?
    Like restaurants and other service-oriented merchants, companies associated with travel services may automatically factor in an additional percentage to cover incidental charges that you might incur. Each entity varies in the amount they could over authorize so to prevent a decline, we advise you to check with the company to determine their policy for over authorizing.

  1. What if my card is lost or stolen?
    If your card has been lost or stolen, contact customer service by calling 1-866-208-3282. You will be able to speak to a live agent and obtain a replacement card. There will be a $15.00 fee assessed to your card balance to replace your card.

  1. What can I do if there is fraud on my card?
    If you notice transactions on your account that you have not made, contact customer service immediately. They will follow normal dispute processes to investigate the fraudulent transactions.

  1. How do I get a list of my balance or transactions?
    You may obtain your current balance or a list of all your transactions through or by calling customer service at the phone number provided on the back of your card. Please note that the website will not display authorizations but only completed transactions.

This authorization may not be deleted from your account for several days. To prevent a potential over-authorization, we suggest that you pay for your gas in the service station.
